About Simon Kelski Photography
Hi! I’m Simon Kelski and I’m a central London based photographer. I specialise in headshots using natural lighting in studio and outdoor locations. As a working actor (working under a different name), I know what a difference a great new headshot can make to the number of auditions you get called for. I’d love to work with you to craft the best portfolio of headshots that communicates who you are at your best. Please have a read of my website to understand how I like to work and have a look at my portfolio approach to headshot photography. I look forward to shooting with you!
Simon Kelski Photography Q&A
What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
There are lots of components to a good photograph: subject, lighting, composition, contrast, post production... But for portraits, the most important thing is for the subject to be relaxed and engaged with the camera. As a working actor as well as a photographer, I know what it’s like sitting on the other side of the camera. I know that not everyone enjoys having their headshot taken, so it’s very much part of my job to make you feel relaxed as possible. The more relaxed you are, the better the shots will be.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
The most important thing to understand is what your portraits will be used for - are they actors headshots for posting on casting website? Corporate headshots for a business website? Or for your own personal website? Whatever the purpose, it's important to first understand the message you want to convey to the viewer about you, and about the kind of person you are.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s incredible to me how so much information about a person can be communicated in a two dimensional image: how a subtle difference in a person’s expression can make or break a shot – and when captured well, can create a lasting connection to the viewer.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I've been interested in DSLR photography for about 5 years. Through my experience working as an actor, I have always been around cameras and have been very grateful to learn from some of the best photographers and cinematographers in this country and abroad. I've always loved taking photos, but I love taking photos of people the most. So starting a portrait photography business was a logical extension of that.
Why should our clients choose you?
I think having your portrait taken should be a fun and relaxed experience. Of course we're working to get a really great set of images of you - but I hope that above all a photography session with me feels relaxed, fun and stress free. All of your images will be available to view in an online gallery within 24 hours of the shoot, and you will be able to pick 4 for retouching.
